Release date: May 2012
Not Your Kind of People is the fifth studio album by alternative rock group Garbage, released worldwide on May 14, 2012. The album was released through the band's own record label, StunVolume. The album marks the return of the band after a six-year hiatus, taken after the release of their last set.
"Working with Garbage again was very instinctual," said guitarist Duke Erikson at the launch of the record. "Like getting on a bicycle… with three other people," Erikson added, "We haven't felt this good about a Garbage record since the last one."
The album was preceded by the release of "Blood for Poppies" as the lead single internationally, while in the United Kingdom, the lead single was "Battle In Me".
The album, which was recorded in various Hollywood, Silver Lake, Glendale, and Atwater Village recording studios, was self-produced by Garbage, and was engineered and mixed by Billy Bush.
